Not sure as to where I should put this question so I figured here. Is it possible to listen to packet radio only? I don't mean listening to the bursts but actually decoding the bursts into text? If so what is a good and easy program to set up through the soundcard on the computer? Thanks for input.

You can certainly do this with a soundcard.

Plug the line-in into a scanner audio jack, install the software, and watch the packets fly.

I presume you are using windows, in which case I have had luck with FlexNet32 and the SoundModem drivers.

For an overview, see http://pages.sbcglobal.net/kb5iwt/flex32/flx_32.htm

You can ignore anything about PTT as you won't be keying a transmitter. No need to build any circuits.
